This guidebook covers cycling the first 1270km of a long-distance cycle route that follows the entire course of the Danube, Europe's second longest river. The route starts at the Danube's source in Donauschingen in Germany's Black Forest, leading to the vibrant city of Budapest in Hungary. This guide is the first in a two-volume set exploring the entire length of the Danube.
The Danube Cycle Way has become the most popular holiday cycle touring route in mainland Europe. Leading through Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary, the route visits spectacular gorges, hilltop castles, vineyard-clad hillsides and medieval towns. The route's highlights are in the three great imperial cities of Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest, where majestic royal palaces, soaring cathedrals and world-famous museums and galleries await.
Suitable for all levels of cyclist; from the experienced to families who are new to this type of journey, the route is on a gentle downhill gradient, is mostly off-road and uses well-surfaced and dedicated cycle tracks or quiet country roads. The guidebook includes maps, guidance on the plentiful accommodation and places to stop for food and drink en route, as well as details on the sights to see along the way, making it the perfect companion to the Danube Cycle Way.
A full set of GPX files for the route described in this guide is now available free to download to owners of the book.
